Ghana’s most diversified entity, Zoomlion, a subsidiary of the Jospong Group limited has officially launched the 1-Million Free Dustbin Initiative with a digital approach.

Under the arrangement, every household will be able to access the free dustbins through digital channels.

Ghanaians will be able to access the free dustbin through three processes, via USSD on *857#, download the app on the playstore or apple store and visit the website for registration.

The social initiative which is under the banner of Jospong Group is to help improve the lives of Ghanaians by correcting poor sanitation practices and developing a solid seamless and efficient waste collection service delivery in Ghana.

Speaking at the launch in Accra on Tuesday, the Chief Operating Officer of the Environment and Sanitation Cluster of the Jospong Group Mrs Florence Larbi, stated that the initiative forms part of their objective by achieving efficient waste management.

“Our mission is to provide proper storage and collection of solid wastes at the household levels, so we can improve the solid wastes management situations.

“We are addressing the issues of lack of appropriate storage containers so we can all stop the trash,” she stated.

She disclosed that a proper digitalization monitoring system has been put in place to ensure an effective initiative.

“We have also linked the provision of 1-million bins with the digitization of payment for trash collection services where customers will now conveniently be able to access and pay for the trash collection services digitally,” she said.

She, however, added that the group is optimistic about achieving the said target of ensuring a clean and sustainable environment through the initiative.
